environment, and we were doing something that was not kosher. i understand it that way. we caught hell at home for doing this. much leisure. the reason i wanted to become an organ player is because i heard -- play.es lay. it just struck me that was what i wanted to do with my life. that was the instrument i gravitated to. that is how i wound up sitting at that instrument trying to find a way to sound like ray charles. tavis: every instrument has its own voice, but there is something about that instrument that resonates. how would you describe how the oregon -- how the organ speaks o us? >> you can try to make that thing thing. unlike a piano. in a few seconds the sound is going to die down unless you strike it again. once you strike an organ, it is going to stay with you until you make it louder or softer or let it go. it is a little like a human voice, so you can put human characteristic with it. tavis: how would you incorporate it with the rest of your body of work? this fits in how? >> this is something of a 360 to me. it was my return to stax records. music is music that would have been ma
the area for 1 hundred and 50 years we're planning you understand public health and our environment don't think that so come in down and see how everybody. >> all right. good morning. thank you all for coming out today i'm ed reiskin i'm the director of transportation in san francisco. i appreciate you all coming out. what we're here to talk about is safety. about a year and a half ago the board of supervisors adapted a strategic plan identifying transportation safety as the number one goal for the 6 years of the strategic plan and that will continue to be our goal. the safety of the transportation system is walking in the streets and driving a bus or riding a bike. i think the good news is that san francisco jefferson is a safe city and a muni is a safe transit agency. we're starting from a good place but there are some areas where there is work to be done. in the area of crime most types of crime are low and continue to decline on the transit system. there's a couple that are going if in the wrong direction. we're going to be talking about that today. the other piece of good news we h
them to two way. so we developed a one way and two-way option, both working through environment and the folsom street pilot project will provide a lot of critical data to inform the final concept. so the one-way offers a -- this is folsom -- a two-way cycle track. on the north side of the street. and the two-way and a transit-only lane during peak hours. and then the two-way has a separated cycle track on both sides. and again to do these things and widen sidewalks, it's the trade-off again, where we have to take parking or take a traffic lane and it's not to penalize anything, but to accommodate the different kind of trips that are there, but also the new land uses will be hopefully such that someone can walk and bike and take transit to home to the store to their job. so we're hoping that the length and nature of the trips will be different. as far as funding is concerned, to-date it's been accommodated or excuse me, funded by a few grants, and agreements or work orders between the two agencies. moving forward, and right now through environmental, again, a few grants, mt
